5 Unwritten Rules Of Friendship
1. Don’t Date a Friend’s Ex
2. Don’t Steal Friends
3. Take Turns
4. Stand By Your Friends
5. Don’t Blow Them Off

It was surpriseing to find that the one person who followed the rules the most was Joey because the literature review, suggested that women were more nurturing than men. The study goes to show that maintaining a friendship is very important, and should be taken seriously. The rules of friendship help us understand that if people talk with one each other, and help one another; anyone can withhold a friendship for life. The study proved that when a group of friends are put in situations that it is very easy to break rules of friendship without even knowing it. The rules seem very easy to follow but most of the time none of the characters on the TV show could faithfully follow them. The TV show was a good example to use because there were three male and three female who were all different types of people to study. When it would seem like one was faithful to the rules they would turn around the next minute and break one. In conclusion the TV show is a way of proving that friendship relationships are very important, and if the rules of friendship are taken into consideration, and followed, a long lasting friendship can be established.
